I needed a new stand for the computer that sits next to my desk, so I came up with this one that also includes a little storage.
The project is made with reclaimed pallet oak, and the nice, full extension, ball bearing drawer guides were obtained by my shop-savvy daughter who’s company was selling them to employees for ONE DOLLAR a pair.
She got me a bunch. I also like to incorporate something meaningful into the project when possible, and the drawer pulls were obtained from an old cabinet of my Mom’s that was too far gone to repair.
The dove tails came out really nice but were hidden when I stained the stand black to match the computer.
My daughter jokingly commented that “at least you’ll know they’re there”...lol
I used a double beading technique for the drawer face detail, and
I left the movable drawer partitions light colored for a little contrast.
The finish is classic black stain and polyurethane, with a wax coat.
It was a fun project.
Thanks for looking.
Have a great day.
